Collins Gets Confidence Vote; Pressure Squarely On Alderson Now

Mets GM Sandy Alderson gave beleaguered manager Terry Collins a “vote of confidence,’’ which traditionally is rarely a good sign. If the clock hadn’t been ticking on Collins yet, it is now. Traditionally, that’s how these things go. ALDERSON: Spares Collins for now. (AP) What winning Friday accomplished was give the Mets a winning record (41-40) at the halfway point,...

Sandy Alderson has alienated the media and fans

Really, Mets360 readers, what’s left to say? It wouldn’t be completely honest to say that it was hard to not write some angry tirade about the team in this space. It was pretty easy, actually. That’s because I’ve joined many Mets fans in moving past anger and into something much worse: apathy. This isn’t uncommon. It’s the sort of feeling we’ve been accustomed to towards...

Alderson Gives Collins Vote Of Confidence, Replacing Him Never Discussed

Sandy Alderson told reporters in Los Angeles on Friday that it would be “grossly unfair” to put any blame about the the team’s play the last two months on Terry Collins and said there’s been “absolutely no discussion” about whether to fire the Mets manager. Alderson said the injuries that have led to the recent slide were unfortunate but hardly the fault of Collins who...

Collins Will Take Hit From Failures By Alderson And Ownership

The Mets’ Terry Collins isn’t a great manager, but far from a terrible one. The hitting slump continued today as the Mets scored only one run in being swept by the Chicago Cubs, which erased any positive thoughts garnered from sweeping the Reds. April’s 11-game winning streak is forgotten; archived in Mets’ trivia. ALDERSON: His manager is on the hot seat. (AP) With the...

Mets’ July Schedule Makes It Imperative For Alderson To Do Something Now

I couldn’t help but wonder what Mets GM Sandy Alderson – the game’s smartest general manager – was thinking last night when his team was shut out for the eighth time. And, the fourth time by a 1-0 score. Perhaps he was mulling over his Twitter account and what 140-character quips he might treat us with. Hopefully, he was thinking about the July schedule that will define this...

Which pitchers has Sandy Alderson actually drafted or signed?

What do Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz all have in common? Besides the fact that they are all on the Mets, none of them have actually been drafted by Sandy Alderson. Matz was drafted by Omar Minaya in one of the deepest left-handed starting pitching drafts ever (2009), Harvey and deGrom were part of the last draft class by Minaya ...

Alderson Characterizes Trade Market As Thin, But Willing To Overpay

During this afternoon’s press conference at Citi Field, Sandy Alderson said he continues to look externally to find some help for the offense. “I would characterize us as somewhat aggressive. I’m prepared to overpay but there has to be something to overpay for.” It sounds like the team has only enough resources to add one player, so they want to be sure it’s someone that...

New York Mets: Sandy Alderson and his New York mess

Recent road games for the New York Mets have been uneventful for the metropolitan franchise. Within the last seven road outings this month, the Mets trudged to a sloppy 0-7 record as they fell to second place in the National League East, behind the Washington Nationals. At the moment, a 36-37 record is not something to be worried about, but as the team heads into July with match...

An Open Letter To Sandy Alderson

Dear Mr. Alderson, We – the worldwide group of Mets fans – have gone through a lot. After two epic collapses in 2007 and 2008, we have patiently endured a slow and gradual rebuild that has essentially lasted six years. First the “tear down” of “Los Mets” from 2009 through 2011. Then from 2012 through 2014 a gradual rebuild, focused on reducing payroll, adding young talent...

Why Doesn’t Sandy Alderson Do Something Already?

Oftentimes I feel as though we have some of the most irrational, bipolar, manic-depressive, flip-flopping fans and writers I’ve ever seen. Win three games, order the champagne and playoff tickets. Lose three games, open the windows and get out on your ledges. In a matter of 13 days I saw one site go from “Do Something Mets” to “Sandy’s In All-Out, Full-On, Hustle Mode”...
